50th Post Giveaway!!!

Standard

This is my 50th blog post.  Wow!!!  To tell the truth I didn’t know I could talk (write) that much.  Before we get to the prize though I wanted to share some of the fun Christmas presents I got.

To start with on the before Christmas I got a package in the mail.  It was a giveaway prize I had won from Carol at Fun Threads.  I was so excited to open the box and see this adorable zipper pouch.  I take handwork around everywhere so I can always use something to hold thread, scissors, etc.

That wasn’t all though.  The pouch was full of sewing goodies.  I love the purple batiks and thread.  I can’t wait to use them.  I just need a great project.  If you have any fun ideas let me know.

On Christmas morning I was pretty surprised to open this present from my mom.  I’ve been eying this Kona Solids Roll-Up for months but just couldn’t justify buying it.  I’m seeing 2″ squares in a gray background.

This present wasn’t a surprise but I was still excited to get it.  I got the book A Touch Of Whimsey… by Abbey Lane Quilts.  It’s full of all kinds of fun pillows.  Anyone who knows me knows that I love to make pillows.  My hubby had bought me the pillow kit on the right a while ago and now I can make it.

So I’m looking forward to starting lots of new sewing projects.  I might even finish some.

Now on to the exciting part.  Everyone who’s been with me for a while knows that one of my favorite quilt stores is My Girlfriends Quilt Shoppe.  It’s full of so many cute and inspirational things.  The owners Kris and Kim are identical twins who also have a TV series called DIY Dish.  They are ridiculously creative and tons of fun.   Anyway, Kim designs great patterns so to finally get to the giveaway…

I’m giving away this pattern for the “Let It Snow” wall hanging by Kim Christopherson of Kimberbell Designs.  I have to admit I’m a little jealous and might have to go back to get me one.  I really love Kim’s quilts. To see more from Kris and Kim go to http://www.thediydish.com or http://www.mygirlfriendsquiltshoppe.com.

To enter to win leave me a comment about one of the projects you want to start soon.  For an extra entry you can follow my blog and leave me another comment to let me know.  I will draw a winner a week from today on Jan. 2nd.  Thanks for stopping by my blog and good luck in the giveaway.
